Professor Emerita, Aichi Shukutoku University
Miho Ohtsubo (visual artist) and Mitsuko Ohnos (scholar/translator), the original members of Arts Transcreation Ireland-Japan, have been collaborating for nearly two decades across artforms in response to Nuala Ní Dhomhnaills Irish language poetry which has a strong appeal to contemporary world readers. Though the two were invited to present Mihos art work as Unasaka/Tír-Fó-Thoinn in April for Cúirt International Festival of Literature, Aistriú and Galway2020, European Capital of Culture, it became clear in March that the Covid-19 pandemic would make it impossible. /// However, in December 2021, with the addition of two more artist members, Hideyo Nagao and Takashi Hiraide, the team will be going to Ireland for Galway2021 to present Ohtsubo\'s \'Black Milk\', a scaled-down but equally powerful art exhibition, invited and hosted by the Republic of Conscience: Human Rights and Modern Irish Poetry, the NUI Galway research project, and the Galway Arts Centre.
